ONOR McGREGOR has shared sparring footage in preparation for his UFC comeback after Dana White revealed a 2020 return date for the Irish star.
The Notorious has been out the cage since an October loss to bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title.
An injury to his left hand also halted plans for the 31-year-old to return at UFC 244 in New York – which is now headlined by his rival Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.
McGregor confirmed his hand has healed, and posted sparring clips in Ireland at his coach’s new Straight Blast Gym.
McGregor’s most likely opponent for his comeback fight is Justin Gaethje.
Since losing to Eddie Alvarez and Poirier, Gaethje has recorded three straight first round knockouts, against James Vick, Edson Barboza and last weekend Donald Cerrone.
The MMA veteran called for a title shot against Nurmagmedov, but will settle for a money-fight against McGregor – even challenging his rival directly on Instagram.
